Abstract

to grasp a better understanding on how they use social media. Our results tell about regional differences in Europe. Great Britain is a forerunner when it comes to social media. Beyond Great Britain the results are less unequivocal. The size of the museum matters when counting number of visitors to the different social media tools. The correlation between regular visitors and digital visitors isn't as apparent in the medium sized museums around Europe though. 84% of the studied museums had a presence on at least one social media tool. The attitude towards social media was mostly positive. Finally we could see a clear difference in how museums used the different social media tools available. (Less)
